I'm posting two versions, one version with the raw untransposed chords that are 
played on piano in the actual song,
 and another version with a capo so that open chords can be played on guitar more easily,
 but the first version sounds more accurate as it follows the voicing in the actual song.

!SCROLL DOWN FOR CAPO VERSION!


Version 1: No capo, Standard tuning

Key: F# Major , 4/4 timing (mostly)

Chords : EADGBe (These are all barre/power chords)
F#     : 244322
A#m    : x13321
B      : x24442
C#     : x46664
Ddim   : x5676x
G#7    : 464544
C#5    : x466xx
D#5    : x688xx
E5     : x799xx
Cdim   : x3454x
F#sus4 : 244422
C#7    : x46464
F#5    : 244xxx

Here is what the chords look like when lined up in bars with the beats written at the top.
This is to help with the timing if you're not sure about it.
Keep playing the chord and count out the beats until the chord changes:

Intro Verse: (bpm=61, this is the piano part at the start)
|1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |
|F#              A#m             |B               C#      Ddim    |
|F#              A#m             |B               C#      Ddim    |
|F#              A#m             |B               G#7             |
|C#                              |C#5 D#5 E5  -rest-              |
                                                 ...Say live and let...

Part immediately after verse: (bpm=70, slightly faster, orchestra comes in)
Be careful of the timing!
|1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |
|F#          B                   |Cdim        F#sus4              |
|F#          B                   |Cdim        | <--this bar is in 3/8 timing

Interlude (bpm=150ish, much faster, a distorted guitar comes in playing the F#5 
power chord 244xxx . There's not much else in this part chord-wise)

Middle verse: (bpm=75 , half as fast as interlude)
|1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |
|B                               |F#                              |
|C#7                             |D#5         E5 ...              |
|     --whole bar rest--         |

And then it goes back to the interlude, and then replay the intro verse again and 
then back to the interlude, when then it fades out at the end.

Where lyrics exist, Here are the chords with the lyrics:

F#            A#m            B             C#        Ddim
When you were young and your heart was an open book
F#          A#m              B
You used to say live and let live
              C#               Ddim               F#
(You know you did, you know you did you know you did)
F#          A#m             B               G#7
But in this ever changing world in which we live in
           C#                  C#5 D#5 E5...
makes you give in and cry

                 F#  B
Say live and let die
             Cdim   F#sus4
live and let die
             F#  B
live and let die
             Cdim ....
live and let die

--Play F#5 all the way through the interlude--

B
What does it matter to ya
F#
when you got a job to do
          C#7
you gotta do it well
          D#5                   E5 .........
you gotta give the other fellow hell...

Em     : 022000 (or 022003 sound more like the original)
F      : 133211
G      : 320033 (or 355433 will be easier for the switch to G#dim)

Good job, but I think the song's actually in G, not F#. It should be played a half step up to match the original key of the song.

Also, here's some corrections on the "Say live and let die" part (given that you're playing in F# and not G):

F# Bm/F#
Say live and let die
F#dim F#
live and let die
